Need a stand to hold a DH and a trail bike
What are you guys using?

So far I've seen two options:

1) Gear Up Oak Floor to Ceiling Bike Rack | BicycleBuys.com

2) Topeak Dual Touch Bike Storage Stand Review | Best Bike Stand Guide

Think i'm leaning towards the topeak, I read it's easier to put together and sturdier, each mount can hold a 40lb bike. One issue I'm seeing is that the top tube angles might be too steep to have the bike mounted with the tires evenly. Since I'm parking the bikes inside and will make the entire area display bike gear, I'd like it to look symmetrical since it will actually be part of my home decor.

Any other ideas out there?

Here is mine that I got from amazon. Holds my dh bike and my steel ht. The individual adjustable arms are key for getting around funky tubes

Not sure, ill check when I get home, but I think so. I use the tightening knobs to hang helmets armor and stuff like that. I'll post a picture of the whole rack as well when I get home

Thule Bstk2 Bike Stacker is the name of rack, i got from amazon for just under 200. I personally think its money well spent, its really study and accommodated all the bikes i had with weird shock placement/tube configuration

yeah i have a thule in my shed already for 2 bikes...i'm trying to work in a minimalist concept tho so i like the topeak a bit more, but won't be able to get parallel tires...if i could do something along these lines i would, but a DH frame doesn't seem to be compatible with minimal :)

What about that guy on kick starter who had the unit that hung the bike by the seat? It had a spot for your helmet and other junk too, you could get two of those.

the shelfie? i like 'em, but
at 14 inches width, won't be able to have a straight front wheel with wide DH bars
and
they don't recommend hanging a bike with a dropper post by the seat (my other bike)

This looks like a great idea.

If anybody has one of these rolling stands, I'd love to know how it's working for you. Harbor Freight makes me think "buy cheap, buy twice" so I hesitate to run out and get one based on the picture alone. But my wife and I have four bikes and a crowded garage, so this stand looks just right for us.
